You’re sure to already have your own favorite luxury hotel brands — maybe there’s one that has just the right amenities or another that you can always rely on for an excellent staff, no matter where you are in the world. While you may love these brands for your own reasons, they could also offer some perks for your kids. Are you taking full advantage of these perks as more and more hotel brands begin catering to younger jetsetters?

St. Regis

Not only does St. Regis provide a Family Traditions at St. Regis offer for you to save on your family stays, but the brand also takes your child into consideration throughout each step of the stay. Unique amenities are provided, whether it be a keepsake or a kid-sized robe; dining doesn’t exclude the picker palettes at the table; and each St. Regis property can provide access to local agencies for qualified babysitting right within your guestroom. Plus, if you forget something at home, all you have to do is ask and you can get a stroller, baby wipes or even diapers.

Four Seasons

Similarly, at the Four Seasons, strollers are available for children under 5 for no charge and the same children can eat for free with their parents at on-site restaurants. A complimentary children’s program called Kids for All Seasons is available, providing kid-friendly activities unique to the location.

Omni Hotels & Resorts

Select Omni properties take older kids into consideration with teen concierge services. The professionals at Omni provide teens with great recommendations for the local spots popular with their own age groups, so they’re not left wandering around behind mom and dad for the entire duration of the trip.

Westin Hotels & Resorts

Another limited but incredibly cool kid-friendly amenity is the in-room tents at Westin Hotels & Resorts. Suite-staying parents can request a cute, hipster-esque tent for their pint-sized traveling companions, and certain properties extend the offer further with toys and activities added.

The Ritz-Carlton

The Ritz Kids experience caters to children 4–12, and focuses on nature and the environment. Special activities are meant to inspire curiosity and environmental responsibility in young learners and employ the four pillars of water, land, environmental responsibility and culture. Through the program, kids can enjoy a full schedule of activities, including meals as needed.

Take a Ski Getaway to British Columbia

The western Canadian province of British Columbia is known for its skiing and winter sports, with Whistler Blackcomb often named one of North America’s top ski destinations. But British Columbia has more places to ski and play in the snow, family-friendly resorts with budget-friendly prices, and up to 400 inches of powder snow. An exchange rate of 75 cents to the dollar is an added incentive for American family travelers to travel north for a vacation.
